alpha bravo charlie

How many times have you struggled to distinguish an “m” from an “n” when somebody is spelling out something for you? Or a “b” from a “d”? To make life simpler, we can use the phonetic alphabet. We can say alpha-bravo-charlie instead of a-b-c and save the number of “What?”s in a conversation.

I found two popular versions. I’m gonna mug up at least one of them. What about you?
